Die Cuts R Us Design Team Holiday Blog Hop!


Can you believe it? Can you feel the excitement? Are you ready to have some FUN? The DCRU DT Holiday Blog Hop is finally here! I know I'm excited!

Here is what you need to do: Follow the hop and visit each DT's blog, being sure to find the magic word that will help  you solve your hop phrase. Leave a message on each blog regarding the hop and, of course, be VERY GENEROUS with compliments...we love to be buttered up...hehehe. Then, at the end of the hop be sure to unscramble the phrase and email your answer to Sammye Jo at  sammyejo@62cards.com. Remember to include your name in the email. Everyone who gets the phrase correct will be entered into a drawing to win a prize from the DCRU Store! Now how cool is that?
We all hope that you enjoy each and every hop on our list. If I am your first stop be sure to head back to the DCRU DT Blog. That is your first and last stop on the hop. Here is the complete list of our stops along the hop and the order in which you should jump:

Gwen (You are already here)

Each DT member has taken time to create very special projects featuring some of their favorite DCRU products. Now, it is no suprise that I LOVE Quickutz. So, my project will be featuring the Quickutz Paper Dolls and the Ballerina Outfit. I also put the girl hair to use too.

I needed a gift for the parent of a set of twins. Something that would be a great way to highlight some of the fun activities that we have been doing all year long. The trick, to find something that would be appealing to the parent of a girl and a boy. Oh, did I mention the twins are Zakk and Zoe? So, you can see how this could cause a little bit of a cunundrum for me, huh? Since I had to do something special for Zakk I also chose to feature the QK Train.

This easy project can be done by anyone. Purchase a simple Photo Album for about a dollar. Remove the front cover and the back cover. Decorate a piece of cardstock and slip it in. Wha-la, a quick and easy personalized gift!
